Hello everyone,

In follow up to the post of Friday, we are pleased to report that due to the significant improvement in the Bear Creek fire situation, we are confident proceeding with the plan to hold the Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival in Haines Junction this coming weekend!

We recognize that we will be guests in the village of Haines Junction and we would like to commend all those who have worked so hard to improve this situation. We have plans in place should the situationĀ change this week, but we are confident in making this decision to proceed, and we very much look forward to seeing performers and patrons alike, starting Friday evening!

Please note: There is still a fire ban in place for southern Yukon (including Haines Junction), and we encourage any smoking patrons to be vigilant with cigarette butts!
